Is that a vinyl or manufactured hardwood? It looks like a hardwood but the vinyl patterns have gotten so good now days sometimes you can not tell the difference.

I went with a vinyl plank, more water resistant. Glue with a pressure sensitive adhesive for ease of replacement if a piece gets damaged. The removal of the existing tile and carpet was the hardest step.

It's manufactured hardwood. Took out all the carpet in the motorhome except for the area up front as shown.

The pattern you used for the layout is perfect for the space.
You can see the quality of your install around the steps.

The tile in these coaches are glued onto plywood which is also glued to the primary subfloor not installed with thinset mortar. Chisels, hammers, pry bars, and a lot of grinding before a new layer of luan plywood and vinyl. For less than 300 feet of flooring this is a week long project. Click image for larger version

Floor looks great and that is what I wanted to do with the entry steps but got veto'ed by my other half. I also got veto'ed on the offset 45 degree pattern... but as ours does not have slides that was probably a good call because it would look to busy.

As for the tile floor that was in you rig, you should have gone to your local tool rental shop and rented a "rotary hammer" (mini jack hammer) with a 4" chisel blade. Would have cost you $35 and the floor would have been out in under 2hrs including cleanup. A kick floor scraper would take care of the remaining glue.

Note: if anyone is reading this later, and you rent a rotary hammer, make sure you have good safety glasses, ear plugs, knee pads and leather work gloves. Busting out tile will slice you up good if you do not take care.
